Welcome to the online home of FRC team 2708, Lake Effect Robotics. Our goal for the 2017 First Steamworks season is to "Work together as a team to build a competitive robot, present an impressive Chairman's Award submission and and continue our record of positive community involvement by building strong partnerships which will raise the profile of science and technology in the Kingston and global communities."
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an international organization founded to inspire young people to pursue a field in engineering.
The ultimate FIRST vision is:
"To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders."
